'Australian genre fiction writers have successfully exploited the Australian landscape and peoples and as a result their books are today "sold by the millions" across boundaries. They have created stories that are imaginative, visionary, and diverse. They appeal to local and international readerships and, most importantly, are thoroughly entertaining, thus making them a strong presence in the popular fiction bazaar.
Sold by the Millions: Australia's Bestsellers is the first collection to concentrate on Australia's best-selling material that forms the armchair reading of many Australians. Leading experts of popular fiction provide introspective pieces on Romance, Horror, Crime, Science Fiction, Western, Comics, Travel, Sports and Children's writing so that a wholesome picture emerges of the wide range of reading and research options available for scholars' (Publisher website).
